Meeting Notes

Daniel went to CalConnect

    • First part was interop, second part was roundtable
    • Every large calendar vendor was represented
    • It was good to get to meet people there, talked about the desperate need for the timezone registry.
    • Interop: We could do better. Daniel fixed some bugs on the fly w.r.t. etags. We have basic support for CalDav right now, which aligns with what most servers support.
      • Scheduling support is currently only available in Apple and Bedework
      • Posted bugs to Bruno
      • Also found bugs on the server side w/some of the implementations
      • It was good to be able to talk directly to the developers in the field.
    • Roundtable:
      • Very big, about 40 people
      • Microsoft were also there and were considering to support calDav or not.
      • It's unclear what their plans are.
      • Most server vendors only have a web UI present, so there is still much interest in fat clients
    • CalDav is still evolving, it's still not complete. One of the things that is missing is a true synchronization feature that can be used for offline mode. All they currently have is etag based checking, which does not scale with larger calendars.
    • CalConnect also discussed further revisions of 2445 and 2446.
    • Could not get any commitment from Google on their calendar APIs. But the fact that they were there shows that they have an interest in the open standards.


  • bug 379236 Philipp consolidated the 0.7 Sunbird/Lightning into one 0.7 milestone. Timeless wants to know if the older milestones into one to make it look neater.
    • Don't care about old milestones, but do care about old versions since those were used to file bugs.
    • Simon will post about the versions in the newsgroup.
    • Simon will ask Timeless about ordering of target milestones
  • All localizations are on board -- still unknown if more is left to do on Lightning. But, for our supported localizations, the tinderboxes are green.
  • We also had an excellent test day yesterday
  • It comes down to the final steps to cut the release.
  • ctalbert will take the first stab at the release notes.
  • Daniel is out from next Thursday for a week
  • Simon is unavailable from Friday to Wednesday
  • bug 380164 is the 0.5 release process tracking bug
  • Daniel has a stage account and can easily prepare the area for us to land the build.
  • ctalbert will call lilmatt after the call.
